Fabrication and Optical Characterization of Silicon Carbide Nanofibers
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 01 February 2011
Silicon Carbide (SiC) nanofibers were synthesized from SiC powder dispersed in polyethylene oxide (PEO) solution in Chloroform using the electrospinning technique. The as-spun fibers were then annealed at 1000ËC to 7 hours. The average diameter of the annealed fibers is 500 nm while the length of the annealed fibers is about 50 Âµm. The fibers were characterized using scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Cathodoluminescence (CL). PL spectra from the annealed SiC fibers show a broad emission in the red-infrared spectral regime. The main peak is centered at 774 nm while the shoulder on the left is at 740 nm
